This is for all my vegetarian readers. Okay this is delicious recipe is not just for you guys alone! It’s actually pretty darn delicious and I’m sure even the biggest meat eaters are going to love this vegetarian buffalo “chicken” sandwich.
I’m a meat eater myself, but lately I’ve been cutting down on my meat consumption due to various reasons and let me tell you, this vegetarian version of buffalo chicken tastes JUST LIKE chicken, if not better!
I don’t know how they do it, but it’s as if your eating a real chicken patty. I’ve had a ton of different types of chicken substitutes but this if by far my favorite.
Now your probably asking yourself “what the heck is vegetarian chicken?!”
Vegetarian chicken is made mostly from vegetable proteins such chick peas and beans.
I made these tasty buffalo chicken wraps by using the Morningstar Farms vegetarian chicken patties. The wraps are pretty easy to assemble and can be prepared in under 10 minutes. you can make them toasted or un-toasted. I toasted my patties in a teaspoon of oil and they turned out so good except I would omit the lettuce next time when toasting because it became a little soggy.

buffalo chicken is one of my all-time fav splurges, whether it’s in salad or wrap form I just love the damn stuff. So when I saw this vegetarian version I just HAD to click, and omg what luck, I am SO a MorningStar lover! Their “Chik” line of products are incredible, my mouth is watering just thinking abt this recipe 🙂
These wraps look great! And I love those grill marks you have on there – I always love the look it gives food 🙂 haha
These will be great when you have things to do in the morning. A portable meal that is good for you.

I’ve never heard of vegetarian chicken before, but it sounds intriguing! I love the idea of the crispy patties stuffed into a wrap!
I am not vegetarian but this look so deciduous! A must try!

I can’t believe this is vegetarian! It looks divine. Thanks for sharing this, it’s my firm belief that we all need to eat less meat.

I’ve also been cutting down on meat, opting to eat vegetarian at least a few times per week. These wraps look wonderful! Can i ask what’s on top of the “chicken” patty, I don’t see it in the ingredients list, is it vegan “cheese” or tofu?

I am addicted to those buffalo “chicken” patties. I make sandwiches with them using healthy wheat buns, light blue cheese, low fat mayo, and lettuce. So good! And they’re spicy!

Love Morningstar, but I have yet to try the chicken version. We’re trying to cut back on meat too, so these are perfect!
